if for example it's a game I would rather have a native app that runs w/o a browser in the middle.

++. For one the game would be able to spend it's time loading content and drawing graphics for me using it's highly optimised C code for me to play with rather than spending time constantly jitting javascript into poorly optimised assembly code with every index into every array getting checked, no types to help the compiler out and the bulk of having a full web-browser bolted on to what I actually just want to be an internet connected game in an executable.
